is to say something that begs me to go back and interrogate it. >> oh, no. tavis: yes. >> oh, no. my first mistake, ok. tavis: yeah, you'll know next time you come on not to do that. >> right, well. tavis: so the mistake you made was suggesting, making this comparison between british and american actors when it comes to playing certain characters. >> yeah. tavis: at least speculate for me on why you think that difference exists. >> i think america wonderfully celebrates the individual. i think you are very good at saying "i." "i like this." i think generally -- tavis: that was very nicely put. we're arrogant, just say it. >> no, no, i actually do not mean that. tavis: we're not "celebrating the individual." >> no, you do. tavis: we're arrogant and we're pompous. >> no, i think that -- look, i am english. you cannot get more arrogant than that, i mean, come on. i think english, you apologize about yourself. we have a level of apology, of kind of going, "i think this -- sorry, sorry i think this." tavis: yeah, yeah. >> there is a general kind of do not stick your head up too high because it'
do that not in a dictatorial way but not also begging, you know, you cannot say to a musician, excuse me, can you please give me this. even if it is a story of carlos cliver, great conductor that was a friend, great friend of mine. we were very, very good friends. and during a rehearsal, he was asking a german orchestra for a pianissimo. and the players answered almost in a rude way saying i am playing piano, i am playing piano, sometime you have this kind of answer. and clyber answered, said, you know, conductors are not dictators. we are like poor man outside the church. with our hat in the hand. and if we have one penny, we are happy. but if we receive two, we are more happy. so it was a very great answer. we ask, we don't demand we ask for something. and when you have a great orchestra, with a great orchestra you can get what you want. so if you don't get what you want, it's your fault. >> rose: it's your fault if you don't get it. >> for several reasons. because are you not good enough. are you not loved. we are not liked. they don't trust you. you don't have the right technique.

have time for another question? >> i beg your pardon? >> i yield back my time. >> the committee recognizes chairman smith. >> let me address my first question to you. it shows there is not much supports and the scientific and space committee for a near- earth astroid in 2025. is this helpful in getting us to mars? are there alternative missions that can replace that mission? >> there's a mission to an asteroid that is in the 2010 national space policy of the u.s. in addition to not having been widely accepted, there were some shortcomings noted. as we look back in time, and there have been several presidents that have talked about mars. the rhetoric toward that was noted by the committee. there are different paths that one could go if that was the chosen destination for a human mission. it will maybe look at integrating some of the other aspects of nasa's work. for example, if that was the strategic goal then you will look at the robotic missions that would support going there. >> the do you think we should reconsider that mission to the near-earth asteroid? >> the committee did
used to sell patricia cornwell. each unto itself. it begs the question when we put an ad in "new york times" come it's not like putting an advertisement for a honda or a cadillac. it is one book. it is not random house advertising on its books. it's one book. it's a very different and very subjective business, which means that you can only fit so much when it comes to marrying books to readers, books for which publishers pay a deal for. when i was at schuster, they paid $8 million, which had been a record number for ronald reagan's memoir, called american life. you know, the math as well as i do. you need to sell 4 million books. not just write a million dollars, you need to sell 250,000. the book actually sold about 300,000 copies. so it was a spectacular failure. because of the comparison. it's a highly complex business with a very thin margin of process. when you add to that the dramatic changes in technology and the public demand, you have an industry that needs to redefine itself. nobody knows that more than the people sitting on the stage who are here to talk to you about it. yo
economy, aren't adversely impacted because people can't do their jobs. >> so that begs the question, hall. how are other countries preparing for this really precarious situation and one in which they really have no control. >> well, martin, there's not much they can do to prepare. what will happen, if the fiscal cliff turns out to take place, is that we'll start to see the economy beginning to slide. the first thing that has happened already is that a lot of small businesses and other companies have been holding back on spending, and on hiring people. because they're worried about the tax rate increase. but starting in january 1st, we're going to start seeing things like payroll taxes going up, we're going to see other taxes starting to come into place that will be very difficult for some people. but that's only the beginning. in february, we're going to have to deal with the debt crisis. and the debt ceiling. and that's going to be an issue that will make the economy even more unstable. and by may and april, we're going to start to see things like estimated taxes increase and the governm
